How To Size A Rigid Cock Ring (Dick)


If you have never used a cock ring, or don’t know why someone would, we addressed related questions in our post How Do Cock Rings Work?” and I can tell you from experience they are a great accessory for any man (and couple!) to own and use: A Solid Investment.

There are a variety of cock ring types available and a good primer on the basics can be found on the Sex Is Fun website. Buying the right size ring is important, especially if it is a rigid ring made of something like steel or aluminum. I have acquired a modest collection of these in recent years (sample few) and would like to share some sizing tips with you. This is a solid guideline but not a guarantee. I recommend you start out with a ring on the less expensive side and upgrade to a premium ring later, once you are confident you have found your perfect size and are looking for a ring to last a lifetime.

What follows is a suggested technique to determine the appropriate size for a rigid or semi-rigid cock ring which fits on the base of your cock behind your balls. Complete the steps, input your result, and then calculate. I’ll make some product suggestions for you once you have finished your calculation. Find an assistant to give you a hand… not only is it helpful but it makes the whole exercise a lot more fun!

Tie A Yellow Ribbon

Tie A Yellow Ribbon Around It
It doesn’t have to be yellow… but once you get the song out of your head find a ribbon with some width to it, like a half inch wide (string works but is not ideal). Wrap it around the base of your dick, behind your balls, cross over in front, and pull the ends with gentle force. It’s tight enough when you see a little skin begin gather (like pleats) beneath the ribbon. It may not feel tight enough, just stay with me.

Not Too Tight!

Not Too Tight!
Tight may be good for vaginas but we’re talking about the future well being of your most treasured friend here. Get over ambitious with pulling on those ribbon ends and you could end up showing off your new cock ring in the Emergency Room. You want a little skin gathered beneath the ribbon, but not too much!

Mark It

Mark It
Use a pen to draw a straight line across the overlapped ribbon. It really helps to have an assistant with this, just be careful you don’t end up with a smiley face somewhere unexpected.

Measure It

Measure It
Straighten the ribbon and measure between your two lines in inches (or cm and convert to inches). Convert fractional portion (i.e. 1/8) into a decimal (i.e. 0.125) to use the calculator below.

Calculate It
Desired Fit

Enter your dick circumference as a decimal value in inches (i.e. 7¼ would be 7.25), select your desired fit (if you are buying your first ring go with “Basic”) and then click Calculate.


Advanced Cock Ring (Tantus)


Tantus Advanced Cock Rings

A silicone cock ring which has flex (like it’s easily squeezed into an oval shape) but very little stretch. It is made to be worn behind the balls and provides excellent retention for erectile tissue. “Advanced” refers to the size (Tantus’ smallest of this type) combined with this ring’s lack of stretch.

What We Really Liked

• Comfortable to wear • Harder, thicker erection • Delayed ejaculation • Durable and easy to clean

The Pleasures Of Giving Oral Sex (Dick)


Receiving oral sex is great for many reasons which need no explanation, but what about giving oral sex? Can a person find pleasure in performing an act which, on the surface, appears to be so one sided? Yes, of course. But perhaps it is not entirely for the altruistic reasons you suspect. Let me back up to get a running start at this.

You’ve Got A Lot Of Nerve

Have You Checked In Lately? (Dick)


People change. They grow, they contemplate, they fantasize. Sometimes they get bored… and every once in awhile there may be a paradigm shift that spins a person’s perspective, ideals, and desires in unexpected directions.

If you are in a long term relationship and you think you have your finger on the pulse of your partner’s desires you might want to double check your assumptions. Maybe you don’t know the whole story any longer.

Or perhaps it is you who has discovered something new about what More >

It Shouldn’t Have Worked, But It Did (Dick)


I was abruptly awoken by a PMS day. The slamming drawers, mumbled expletives, and general frustrations of Richter magnitude rattling out of our bathroom were a dead giveaway that Jane would soon be blessed again with the crimson gift of womanhood.

She’s an early bird who gets more done before I wake up in the morning than I get done all day and this day was no different. Jane had been up for some time, was dressed, and ready to take our Golden Retriever for a walk. Her aggravation crescendo had More >

Our Recommendations, Updated!


We recently took a day off from our regular routines to spend it focused on each other (you can read about that here) which involved cracking open the sex toy vault to liberate our favorite forms of entertainment. It occurred to us that we really have a significant collection of stuff… some of which we have written about (or reviewed) but much of which we have never mentioned here.

There is so much crap on the market! We think we have sorted through enough lousy products to get both an More >


He Has Never Really Wanted Sex, Is It Me?


My husband and I have been married for 2 years and together for 6. He has always said that he has thought sex was “yucky” and that he never wants it. When we are intimate I feel like he is just going through the motions to make me happy. I am generally unable to help him achieve an erection, nor can I help him come to an orgasm. I am a psychology major working on my Bachelor’s of Science, so I understand that there are some underlying psychological issues at play here. However, he frequently More >
